Great job. Thanks for all your hard work here.
May I ask, if for example, I set the auto-update to 1day, When does the check occur? On first startup of that day? Then it gets ignored until the next day?
Personally I preferred the layout with Apply and Update buttons below the search function.
But looks great and can see more of the app description now.
Didn't auto check on start up though!
But did check other suites when I clicked their tabs

Well your scenario is not the only possible one.
Think about this one: you work with a normal user even if you have the credential for an administrative access. When you want to execute something in elevated mode you can do it with the Run As option. So you need to see all the programs regardless your current logged user.

Hi guys.

The beta version is ready.

These are the new features:
  • A SyProgram can be flagged with Run as Admin to execute it in with elevated privileges
  • SPS Manager - The form is completely redrawed
  • SPS Manager - The native program suites now update their definitions automatically. The interval between the updates is customizable.
For any feedback, please report.

Well done, Gian.
I dare to suggest an associated feature in the configuration: auto hide if you don't have administrative rights.
Example: I use my SyMenu at home and at work. At home I have administrator rights at work no.
Viewing applications that need administrator rights at work is not necessary.

Wow guys.
The new design is ready and finally it works. I found the right solution for the SPS Manager.

And I'm including a long awaited feature too: you'll find a new attribute for your programs to always execute them in elevate mode with no need of the execution modifier.

Stay tuned for the beta version.

OK... So i woke up this morning and powered on my system, after having turned it off last night to stop any further infection and before I had a chance to remove the infected files. I ran the scan again and now no infections are detected. SyMenu opens without triggering any warnings.

What is going on now?

Would you recommend that I save the config files, delete the the files that were said to be infected and then reinstall them?

Thanks for rhe quick reply Gianluca.

That's what I was afraid of since the total number of infections was going up evey time I scanned.

I will rinse and repeat.

It's really strange.
I've just resubmitted SyMenu.zip to Virustotal and Webroot doesn't report any virus.
Check it here: https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/591181b2255b57c12fa5b6550b091e44deb302f5009b7c8e0992af0c608b6fba/analysis/1493072214/
Maybe your system is really infected by a virus that is duplicating itself in other executable files (it's an old-style virus behavior).
My advise is to clean up everything with your AV and then download all the deleted programs again.
Regarding SyMenu save your configuration before (folder Config).
And let me know how it'll solve please.

Thanks Gian.
It's just things look neater when applied to an invisible grid. Sometimes this is unnecessary, but in this instance, I think it's required.

I have been running Webroot SecureAnywhere and SyMenu side-by-side for a while with no issues. But today Webroot popped up saying SyMenu was detected as having a w32.Trojan.Gen infection. When I ran a manual scan with Webroot, several other apps I installed with SyMenu also cam up with the W32.Trojan.Gen infection.



Anyone else having this issue?
Is this a false positive or has my SyMenu been compromised?

Even if I tell Webroot to ignore this for now, it is still detected as an infection and SyMenu will not run.

Do I uninstall SyMenu and the other infected apps?
Or have Webroot Quarantine them for now?

Or should I report this as a false positive to Webroot and not remove the detected threats?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

By now you should have understood the SyMenu golden rule: everything is customizable! smile So don't worry. The auto trash, when available, will be optionally.

I haven't understood clearly what is your scenario but it seems you've found a bug here.
Can you create a schema with all the combination you've checked and send to me in private please?
Thanks.

I am surprised!
for month i made "symenu.exe" into "admin mode" (via it's exec properties change)
I just reversed that and it works
Don't undertand why, as "sysmenu.exe" was actually marked as "run at W startup" in the register (as shown in the screen copy)

Drawback is that I need to elevate "manually" as programs which need admin rights do not inherit that privilege from sysmenu itself
is there a way to make a kind of "autoexec start" for "elevate symenu" fonction? or "elevate at startup" option ?

Not vital, just helpfull
thanks for help

Try this: start SyMenu in admin mode, set the option to autorun SyMenu when Windows starts, then restart SyMenu in normal mode and check if the option is still set.
Since SyMenu writes that option in the registry you should have elevated privileges to success in that.

I'm using symenu extensively on several computers (cloning it on USB from my main PC)

So on this PC I want it to start with Windows, I also made several other symenu suite programs autostart with W10 (1)
Everything works fine for any other program EXCEPT FOR SYMENU!!
- I tried "autostart option"
- so added a shortcut to windows "start" folder
- so added a task in the scheduler
NONE of the above works!!! (below is an autorun screen copy)

This issue lasts for months now but starts irritating me a lot !!!!
just GRRRRR!!!!!!
so, if anyone has a clue bowrofl

(1) I know that doing that, makes them "not strictly speaking portable" which I really dont bother about! and everything works perfectly on any PC

--- autorun screen ---

Thanks for the feedback.
May I make some minor criticisms though...
1. The previous layout was neater.
2. Auto trash may not be such a great idea. I have been saved several times by this great backup system.
3. Love the trash tooltip idea.
4. Good point about Remove App, didn't realise that.
5. My intention for the drive bar was to simply be shortened a few pixels so it's right hand edge would be in line with the App descriptions right hand edge.
